Teaching Doctors retirement age raised to 60

State Government takes decision at a review meeting

Hyderabad, June 26, 2007

A review meeting held on Tuesday that was chaired by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy has taken a decision to enhance the retirement age limit of teaching doctors to 60. The decision was taken in the backdrop of acute shortage of faculty in medical colleges and the threat of de-recognization by Medical Council of India (MCI).

According to a press release issued, the decision of enhancement of retirement age limit will apply only to those doctors who are under the purview of the Director of Medical Education only. The Government has taken the decision in the wake of unhappiness expressed by a team of Medical Council of India (MCI) over the inadequate faculty during their recent inspection in the State. Nearly 94 professors are due to retire during 2007 (53) and 2008 (41). If it happens and the resultant vacancies are not filled, many medical colleges face the threat of Medical Council of India recognition. Promotions from he feeder category are also not possible because of the MCI stipulation of minimum four years experience as an associate professor for eligibility to the post of professor.

The existing medical colleges are faced with faculty crises, the Government has decided to start new three medical colleges in Adilabad, Srikakulam and Prakasam districts from 2008-2009. The Chief Minister will be laying foundation for the new medical college proposed at Ongole on July 1. The release further stated that the meeting has taken various measures to overcome the staff deficiency including regular recruitment in the cadre of assistant professors and enhancement of reservation in PG seats for in service doctors did not yield the desired results. Hence, the government was left with no option but to enhance the retirement age limit of teaching doctors.
